With UIA turned off, JAWS no longer pronounces the new line character generated when you press shift with return.


So far, that’s the only down side I have seen.

My sanity is saved!!! 😀

Thanks so much for this.

But, are there any major down sides to turning off this feature in Word? Just curious.

I can also confirm that the problem an be fixed by turning off the UIA feature in Word.


  • Press Insert v to go into Quick Settings.
  • Search for uia.
  • Arrow down to the actual choice and hit space to uncheck Use UIA in Word365 documents.
  • Pres OK.
